The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

1:32 Fairey Gannet AEW... anyone??


Recommended Posts

Being worked on by the same guy who also produced a resin 1/32 Buccanneer .... A vey brave move indeed. 

The Gannet is an incredibly big aircraft. When standing next to (well, « under » is an apter description) it, I felt really dwarfed. And that wing looked so thick ...

It has the ungainly charm of the post-WWII British aerospace industry products. I actually quite like it, which means I must be twisted somewhere :lol: ... BUT, why go for the ugliest version, the AEW one, when the ASW was more interesting IMHO ? Well you can’t please everyone all the time, I guess. I’ll let the die-hard British contingent support the initiative, and focus my cash on other unloved aircrafts ;) .

Had heard this was a possibility. Remember seeing them at local airshows as a kid. As Hubert says it's another of the great British 'fuglies'. Could only be loved by their mothers but it was pretty damn efficient at what it did.

Did you get one of the family sedan versions from Paul when he was still up and running?

Yep!  And I bought one off a forum classified as well.  Here’s the one I bought .  It was my COVID build this past March/April.

Ugh!  Did Fairey make anything that wasn't ugly as hell?

Here it looks like a Spitfire mated with a schoolbus:


...  And that's the best looking one!


I'll be passing on the Gannet.

At least we got the pretty end of the Spitfire.:lol:
